Holding My Breath

I'm certain that as soon as I hit the "publish" button at the bottom of this screen, all three children will wake up vomiting with raging fevers and hoarse sounding coughs. How do I know this? Because I'm about to tell you how healthy we've been this winter.

I don't know about you, but my memory of last winter was The Worst Winter of All Time EVER in the areas of sickness and nasty weather. Maybe it was H1N1, maybe it was pregnancy making everything seem worse. But I know we were stuck at home for most of January and February because of illness and impassable roadways. And that just hasn't been the case for us this year.

Of course, "healthy" is a relative term. We were pretty sick in October, and since then there have probably been two weeks that the boys haven't had snotty noses. But other than that, one ear infection and one little low grade fever, we've been healthy. (No, seriously, that's super healthy.)

So the combination of this and SIXTY degrees today (in February?!?!) makes me cautiously optimistic that the groundhog was right? Maybe it's almost spring afterall? And this winter wasn't so bad? And we made it?

[insert no jinxing plea here]

I feel the same way...just waiting for it to hit! I don't even want to talk about it too specifically. We plan on enjoying today's super-warm temps b/c it looks like next week will be cold and possible snow again. I'll take it while it lasts :) Here's to hoping that we all stay healthy!

I have to follow up and tell you that there are now TWO runny noses in my least one is certain to be the path to an ear infection...sigh :(

Well maybe next winter will be a better one for us because we've had two horrendous winters in a row!

Glad you've been so healthy, especially since Luke is so young. (I think the younger they are the more difficult it is when they're sick.)
